I’ve been leading the Dream Business Mastermind since 2009, and for months now, I’ve enjoyed telling you about some of the amazing and gifted members that I’ve had the privilege to coach.
Today, I want to tell you about Stacey Riska, a truly gifted and talented entrepreneur.
Stacey is a serial entrepreneur, coach, author, and she is a nationally recognized small business marketing expert.
Stacey has created several successful businesses, and while that is amazing by itself, two things make her a gifted entrepreneur.
First, Stacey has truly learned how to make lemonade from lemons. During her long entrepreneurial journey, has been knocked down countless times, and she always gets up and keeps going!
Second, Stacey inspires countless entrepreneurs by sharing her gifts and talents though her books, videos, and social media. Stacey truly gets the ‘Serve First’ model.
Stacey knows firsthand how a great brand and marketing can lift a fledgling business to success.
She has won numerous marketing awards through her career, but before all of the awards and accolades, Stacey proved her mettle by overcoming significant debt many years ago with her coffee and smoothie business.
Stacey recently shared on Dream Business Radio, that one day early in her coffee/smoothie business, she found herself $500K in debt and about to lose it all – her house, her family and her sanity.
It was during this very trying time that Stacey, instead of folding her tent, picked herself up, and learned how to be a great marketer. She then transformed her business from heavily in debt, to a 7-figure profitable powerhouse.
Since these early days, Stacey has created additional businesses and programs, such as the Daily Deals for Massive Profits and Silver Platter Marketing, which is a ‘Done-for-You’ marketing program for busy small business owners.
Stacey and her husband, ‘Digital’ Dave, then prepared to teach other coffee and smoothie retailers how they created so much success with the catering side of their coffee and smoothie business. Their program, called “Cups to Gallons” is amazing but unfortunately, the pandemic put the brakes on this launch, at least for now.
Stacey and I first connected many years ago through social media and at various live events. Stacey and Dave then attended one of my live Dream Business Mastermind events in Annapolis, MD. She subsequently joined my Dream Business Mastermind at the Platinum Coaching Level, and later upgraded to VIP Elite Coaching.
My team at Success Advantage Publishing and I helped Stacey publish the book, “Small Business Marketing Made EZ.”
This book shares her simple, 6-step system, that any small business owner can use to their marketing into ACTION – literally and figuratively.
When Stacey’s not busy saving the small business world with marketing, she loves spending time with her family, eating chocolate and sipping red wine.
